I need to have a workstation automatically logoff a user after a defined period of inactivity.

I have looked in Local Security Policy and have only found an Automatic Logoff option for when the users Logon times expire.

Suggestions ?

Thank you

You have a couple of options. One is a utiulity that comes with the resource kit called the winexit screensaver. It takes a little setting up for non-admin users, but it does work.


The other would be this freeware program that will also do this and is easier to setup. They have complete instructions on thier site.
